I have finally found the Holy Grail of push-up bras. It’s comfy, cute, and does what it says it will do. Pushes the chickies UP!

My search for the ultimate push-up bra began several years ago when I realized that my membership in the Itty Bitty Titty Committee was fo’ LIFE. Well, that is unless by some miracle getting knocked up makes them get big and stay big (slim chance), or I pay thousands of dollars to get two silicone sacks installed (slimmer chance).

So I’m stuck with my little B ladies. I’m cool with that – I love and accept them! But it doesn’t mean that I don’t want cleavage every once in a blue moon. Hey, old married women need to let it all hang out once in awhile, too. (Ok, that sounded slightly more grotesque than I intended it to.) Anyway, this is a roundabout way of explaining that I now have cleavage thanks to my new Vicky’s Secret bra that has more padding than a football player’s uniform. But who cares? My boobs are floating!

Check out my new bra, the Body by Victoria Push-Up, being modeled by a very eager young woman.

Nice upper lip. It looks so real!

Don’t ask me how I found this golden nugget amongst the sea of bras that all look the same. But, I guess you really have to take your time with these things. I’m usually a quick shopper when I go to Vicky’s Secret. I feel weird standing there squeezing bra cups while some woman brings her googly eyed boyfriend in the store. Is there like a rule that says there has to be one LEERING dude in Victoria’s Secret at all times? Ugh.

If I absolutely have to bring L in with me, I try to tell him nicely not to stare. Maybe he does, maybe he doesn’t? Maybe he’s been the googly eyed boyfriend before and some woman is writing on her blog about L, the staring V.S. creeper. Who knows? Am I the only one who notices this? Probably.

Anyway, point of the story – I took my time, and found booby nirvana. Cheers to looking better in a t-shirt or sweater sometime soon!

Do you have a favorite push-up bra?

    I do have a favourite, from La Vie en Rose.

    But … yes, I've also noticed the leery creeper. We have LaSenza in Canada. It was a Canadian owned company until last year when Victoria's Secret bought it out. So in Canada, VS is the same thing as LaSenza. And in LaSenza, there is ALWAYS the googly eyed leery creeper. Always.

    I try to ignore him.

    What really gets me is when he's in the dressing room with the girl. I mean, get out of her mister!

    Hehe … oops. I meant, "get out of HERE" not get out of her.

    I wish I could wear a push-up bra but I can't. I have size 34DDs. Hear me out though, they seem big but really they are just wide, not perky so if I try to wear a push up bra to make them look more "together" they look HUGE. Like I'm going to fall over huge.

    YES there is ALWAYS a freaking creeper in VS. ALWAYS. It makes me so annoyed… and somehow he's always stationed by the fitting rooms. Gross.

    I shop at Gap Body and am pretty happy with their push-up bra. And it usually isn't crowded there at all, I am always the only person or there is one other girl so I have honestly never seen any creepers. But, ew, I would hate that!
    I just got fitted at Intimacy (highly recommend it!) and found out I am a C. I always considered myself part of the "Itty Bitty Titty Committee" (hehe) so I thought the consultant was lying to me, haha.

    My favorite is the BioFit UpLift Body by Victoria Full Coverage bra.I wear a 36DD and tend to stay away from push-up bras because I'm afraid if I wear one, my boobs may choke me to death, lmao.

    Oh and you cracked me up about her top lip, ROTFL!!!!

    Actually, I do have a new favorite! The VS Miraculous! You know, the one with the sassy slogan, "Hello, bombshell!" 😉 The reasons I have for liking it are 1) it works, 2) it has more padding than anything ever, 3) it contours the side boob area, which gives you more of the hour-glass shape that I know I always wanted. It's basically a $48 boob job, and what's not to love about that?!?!

    And yes, there is always the token VS creeper in the stores I go to. Weirdos!

    I'm not usually one for push-ups, but I tried the new V Plunge from VS and it was 'Wow', so like Chicken Wing, I went for the similar $48 boob job. 🙂

    They should totally make a little 'men's section' in VS stores that's closed off, with couches and ESPN. That way the guys would have something to do other than creepily stare. My fiance always feels soooo uncomfortable when I drag him in. Our store won't let the guys near the dressing rooms, so he just stands there weirdly until I'm done trying stuff on. Heh.
